Mr G and I have just spent a lovely week in East Anglia, the first three days were in a little self catering cottage in the delightfully named village of Great Snoring! Feeling the need for a chilled out break we thought we would go somewhere we had never been before and explore a bit...and it's not too hilly either! We stopped off at Waitrose for a few supplies in Swaffham and noticed the wind turbine next to it had an observation area at the top. On further investigation we found you could climb up there for a fiver..............
So 300+ steps later and we were at the top looking at the wonderful view across Norfolk! The spiral stairs get narrower as you go up and it's quite claustrophobic as you near the top. Weirdly it was worse going down and made you feel quite dizzy, the whole thing moves and sways in the wind too! So far, so good for a flat walking holiday!
The sunset at Blakeney was lovely, the North coast of Norfolk is such a treat and birds to knock your socks off. We watched a Barn Owl hunting for about half an hour in the field we were in and around us at dusk.
The moon reflected in the water was just a perfect view as we returned back to the cottage. While we were in North Norfolk we also saw Avocets, Spotted Redshank and Snipe as well as a host of other goodies ( No, not the Bill Oddie Goodie!)
